There are no repercussions for advocating policies that amount to colossal disasters when you’re a political pundit whose policy prescriptions align perfectly with what politicians in power want to do anyway. It doesn’t matter if the policies you advocate end up destabilizing a region, leading to the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians, creating a […]

How Republicans Learned to Love Obamacare
March 25, 2017

I hope you’re sitting down for this because it looks as though Republican opposition to Obamacare was largely nothing more than political posturing all along. Despite repeatedly voting to repeal Obamacare during Obama’s tenure in office (When there was no chance it would actually happen, in other words), when Republicans controlled both Congress and the […]

After spending eight years during the Obama presidency denouncing anyone who spoke favorably of secession or nullification as a “Neo-Confederate” with sinister motives, some Democrats and progressives are suddenly quite taken with the ideas now that President Trump is exercising the powers that he inherited from President Obama.

January 21, 2017

Donald Trump has been inaugurated as the 45th President of the United Stated and it’s never too early to start thinking about how best to remove a person from power, even if they’ve barely begun to exercise that power.

There’s a lot of misinformation going around regarding the alleged hacking of the U.S. by the Russian government to help Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, and it’s sure to get more confusing now that President Obama has lashed out against Russia by expelling diplomats and imposing sanctions. The first thing […]

Possibly the most absurd, shocking, and entertaining election in American history is finally over, and, God help us, Donald J. Trump will be the 45th President of the United States with a Republican majority in the House of Representatives and the Senate. I’ve long said that it’s only a matter of time before a reality […]

Anything Donald Can Do Hillary Can Do Better
October 8, 2016

Donald Trump has finally had to apologize for comments he made in the past disparaging women and talking about how being a celebrity has allowed him to take liberties with them. The comments were creepy and gross, and chalking them up to “locker-room talk” or “boys will be boys” is equally gross. We’ve all said […]

Hillary’s Useful Murderess
September 29, 2016

At the first debate on Monday, Hillary brought up a former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, who had been insulted and mocked by Donald Trump for gaining weight after she won the pageant. The goal was to highlight that Trump has a history of making horrible remarks about women. Never mind the fact that he says […]

August 25, 2016

If I may use a tired baseball analogy, it’s safe to say that we’re currently rounding third in the 2016 presidential election, and it appears as if Hillary Clinton is going to be the 45th President of the United States. As seen in the graphic below, all the current polling indicates a Clinton victory over […]
